Wu-Tang Clan Pissed as new report says Asian-Americans still the "Other"

This is not what anyone looks like ANYONE

A recent report by Committee of 100 has Wu-Tang Clan and others in the Asian-American community upset. "Still the Other?" reveals some disturbing stereotypes still ring true about Asian-Americans in the public eye despite evidence of the contrary. The report also found that most people still do not know of the distinction between Asian and separate ethnic groups such as the Chinese and Japanese. The Wu-Tang says "they ain't havin' it."

"This ain't nuttin to fugg wit, peoples being trying to mush us all into one group. Fugg that! Rza he is definitely Chinese, Raekwon Korean, Ghostface Killah is Vietnamese, look at me I am definitely Thai, this is 2009!" said a quite irate Method Man.

The report was clear that even though over 50,000 Asian-Americans are enlisted in the United States military, people generally don't think they are loyal to the US. Rza, the resident leader of Wu-Tang stated, "Yo, if I could talk to these people give them a heads up. I would show them what's fugged up. It's as Confucius says "Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it." He added plus this is just "fugged up."

The Wu-Tang Clan have started making a new album to approach the report in a positive manner. The hope is to bring awareness of the Asian-culture and dispel stereotypes. They also said if you disagree with them well, they have a message for you too.....

I am Frank Chow and I approved this message.
